Ayat: al-Hijr 1 - an-Nahl 128

The name al-Hijr refers to the same area where Thamud used to live in the north-western part of Arabia. The main theme of the Surah is divine guidance, and people's response.  Allah's warns those who deny this message and as a reminder of these warnings, we have here the stories of Prophet Lot's people, Thamud and other groups.

Surah an-Nahl speaks about Allah's creative power.  Everything in the universe points to Allah.  There is coherence and balance in Allah's creation.
